Abstract: The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) aims to engage patients in research in a variety of roles, including identifying research questions, designing studies, and contributing to decisions on recruitment, data collection and the analysis of findings. The two-page commentaries in this supplement reflect on the experiences of 17 OSSU (Ontario SPOR SUPPORT [Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials] Unit) project teams that have involved patients in their research. They describe involvement in projects related to improving different aspects of healthcare and report on a range of impacts. Most describe an impact on research design.
